Tue Ace oF CHtvaLry.-Look [Cavalry.-Look] at the mottos on the seals of our older nobility, which date from the era of the Crusades, or the ages sueceeding [proceeding] it, when their heroic spirit was not yet extinct, and there will be seen the clearest demonstration of what was the spirit of these memorable contests. They are all founded on the sacrifice of self to duty, of interest to devotion, of life to love. The Bloody Heart of the Dougias [Douglas] still attests the time when the heart of Robert Bruce was thrown forward by his heroic follower, the good Lord James, in battle with the Saracens in Spain. There is little to be seen there about industry amassing wealth, or prudence averting ealamity; [calamity] but much about honor [honour] despising danger, and life sacrificed to duty. Ina utilitarian or eommercial [commercial] age, such principles may appear extravagant or romantic; but it is from such extravagant romance that all the greatness of modern Europe has taken its rise.

A Srrixrye [Syracuse] REtIc.-Mr. [Relic.-Mr] E. B.

The relic passed from his family te that of Jacob Lyell, whose wiz emigrated to New Jersey near the close of the 17th century, and was connected with the Fenwicke [Newark] family. She gave it to her daughters, who kept it with the greatest care, and at their death it passat [past] into another branch of the family, and has finally come iato [into] the posses- [possession] sion [ion] of Mr Thompsvn.

Lixcotn [Liston] CaTHEDRAL.-As [Cathedral.-As] we approach Lincoln from the west, the three towers are grouped together, the vast central one appearing to stand between those of the western facade in a pyramidal form; whilst the glorious front, with its octagonal turrets, standing like sentries to guard the approach, presents an elevation unrivalled ia England. The north and south views are scarcely less striking. The country round Lincoln is remarkably flat, unbroken but by a chain of ills, at the very end of which, and jutting out like a promontory, this noble minster is built. It there Fears its triple towers in solemn grandeur high above the neighbouring churches, which it seems to shelter under. its fostering wings. Ve once saw it under a peculiarly beau- [beautiful] tiful [pitiful] atmospheric effect. A thick mist was arising from the river Witham, obscuring the lower part of the city, and as it curled.along the base of the cathedral, this wonderful and stupendous temple of the great God appeared as the fabled tomb of Mahomet, suspended between earth and heaven. It was a sight not easily to be forgotten, resem- [resume- resembling] bling, as it did, the marvellous creations of a poct's [post's] dream, rather than a fabric reared by human hands.

The reception was unusually brilliant, the invitations numbering nearly 2,000, and comprising the Royal Family, the foreign princes in this country, the whole of the diplomatic corps, the cabinet ministers and principal members of the administration, with their wives and daughters, the officers of state; and the ladies and gentlemen of the househeld [household] of the Queen, the princes, and the different members of the Royal Family, all foreigners of distinction at present in town, several hundred members of the House of Lords and House of Commons, and many officers of the naval and military service. The ladies appeared in dresses of great beauty and richness, exhibiting every variety of colour and design in the fabrics, which were of the most elegant and costly materials. Jewelled ornaments of the greatest brilliancy and value adurned [adjourned] most of the costumes. The gentlemen were all im [in] court dress, officers of the army, navy, and ord- [ordnance] nance wearing their respective uniforms, and members of the administration the full dress official costume members of orders of knighthood all appeared in their different en- [ensigns] signs. Among the earlier arrivals were the Marquis of Anglesey, Baron de Brunow, [Brown] Lord Stanley, Viscount Har- [Harding] dinge, [ding] the Duke of Beaufort, Lord Gough, Sir Robert Peel, the Earl of Aberdeen, and Sir James Graham. Her Majesty opened the ball with his Royal Highness the Prince ot Prussia, the vis-a-vis [is-a-is] being his Royal Highness Prince Albert and the Duchess of Sutherland. The Queen wore a blue silk dress trimmed with silver blonde, and with wild roses (pink and white), and ornamented with dia- [aid- diamonds] monds. [minds] Her Majesty's head-dress was formed of a wreath of pink and white wild roses, richly ornamented with diamonds, to correspond with the dress. OF THE INFANT Prince.-The baptism of his royal highness the infamt [infant] prince, third son of her majesty and his Royal Highness Prince Albert, took place on Sa- [Saturday] turday, [Saturday] in the chapel within Buekincham [Chamberlain] Palace. The Prince of Prussia arrived in London on Friday, for the pur- [our- purpose] pose of officiating as one of the sponsors of the infant prince. At six o'clock the officers of state and invited guests, con- [consisting] sisting [sitting] of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent, her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, his Royal Highness Prince George, her Royal Highness the Princess Mary, his Royal Highness the Prince of Prussia, his Serene Highness Prince Edward of Saxe [Sale] Weimer, [Warmer] his Serene High- [Highness] ness the Prince of Leiningen, [Leaning] his Grace the Duke of Wel- [Well- Wellington] lington, [London] the Belgian, Portuguese, and Prussian ministers,. the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Eart.of [Art.of] Minto, Lord John Russell, Sir George Grey, Viscount Palmerston, Earl Grey, Sir C. Wood, Sir F. Baring, Sir J. Hobhouse, the Earl of Carlisle, the Right Hon. Fox Maule, Sir W. Somerville, and others invited to the solemnity, assembled in the Old Dining Room at the palace. The Archbishop of Canter- [Canterbury] bary, [Barry] the Bishop of London, the Bishop of Chester, (clerk of the closet), the Bishop of Oxford (Lord High Almoner), with the Rev. Henry Howarth (rector of the parish of St. George, Hanover-square), the Hon. and Rev. Gerald Wel- [Well- Wellesley] lesley [Wesley] (resident chaplaim [chaplain] to her majesty), the Rev. Lord Wriothesley [ruthlessly] Russell (deputy clerk of the closet), and the Rev. Henry George Liddell (chaplain to his Royal Highness Prince Albert), assembled in the room adjoining the Old Dining Room, and took their places at the communion table. The chapel was duly prepared for the ceremonial, and the font used was that of gold, three feet high, made for the christening of the Prince of Wales. The altarpiece was a fine tapestry of the baptism of the Saviour, by Res- [Restore] tout. Shortly before seven o'clouck, [o'clock] the Queen and Prince Albert entered the chapel, the march in Handel's Occa- [Occur- Occasional] sional [national] Oratorio being performed at the time and as soon as all the company had entered, a chorale composed by the prince was sung. The important rite was then performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury who christened the child Arthur William Patrick Albert, the Duke of Wellington, the Duchess of Kent (proxy for the Duchess Ida of Saxe [Sale] Weimar), and the Prince of ia officiating as sponsors. The whole party retired at the conclusion of the rcligious [religious] service. At eight o'clock, her majesty was conducted, by the lord-steward and the lord-chamberlain, to a state ban- [banquet] quet [quiet] in honour of the occasion and in the evening, her majesty received a party. DrEatTH [Death] OF JOHN Rosy, Esq.-Among the numerous persons who perished in the lamentable wreck of the Orion steamer from Liverpool to Glasgow, off Portpatrick, last Tuesday morning, was John Roby, Esq., formerly a partner in the banking-house of Messrs. Fenton and Roby, of Roch- [Rochdale] dale. Mr. Roby, who had for some years retired from business, was en his way, with his wife and daughter, to Edinburgh, where he intended to reside some time, Mrs. and Miss Reby [Rey] were anrong [Rangoon] the saved, but he was drowned. His body was found on the same day, and on Thursday by his mourning widow and daughter to Roch- [Rochdale] dale for interment. Mr. Roby was a highly accomplished man, and the author of works which attained no small celebrity, amongst which we may name Traditions of Lancashire, Tour en the Continent, Lorenzo, a m, and another poem entitled 'Sir Bertram, a Tale of Redemption. He-also wrote several publications for the Religious Tract Seciety;. [Society] and he was publishing a tele [tee] Hogg's. Instructor, called the 'Three Sisters, or Past, Present, aad [and] Future. He-was about fifty-eight years of age. Mr. Roby was very nearly related to the late vene- [even- venerated] rated Rev. Win. Roby, of Manchester, and he was brother- [brother] in-law to the late Rev, John Ely, of Leeds. He was him- [himself] man of religious character, and,of high character in the commercial Mercury. THE POLICE FORCE IN DIFFERENT Towns.-The Stock- [Stockport] port Mercury says At the meeting of the Manchester town council last week, a motion was brought forward by Mr. Bowker for the reduction of the police force, and a table was read showing the numbers of the police and the population of several towns, which certainly exhibits our own borough in a very favourable and prominent point of view, as it clearly shows that in this borough there are 1,395 more inhabitants to each policeman than in any other town or borough in the long list of places enumerated by Mr. Bowker, The calculation, which is rather under than over the mark, shows that in Stockport we have one po- [policeman] liceman [policeman] to every 4,195 inhabitants whiist [whilst] Macclesfield, which is next im [in] the scale, has one policeman to every 2,800 inhabitants. The list also shows that Stockport has 1,692-1a0ve. [1,W-ave] habitants. to..eagh, [to..each] policeman than Bolton, 1,695 move than Oldham, 1,995 more than Warrington, 2,144 more than Preston, 2,545 more than Salford, 2,623 more than Halifax, 2,659 more than Huddersfield, and no less than 3,116 more than Bradford. How does this happen The places enumerated have in many respects similar pursuits, tastes, and habits, and yet there is a very great difference in the amount of protection required for each. There must be surely something in it which requires explanation, and hence such eaquiries.as. [enquiries.as] that, instituted in the Manchester town council, if it serves no other object, may at least be the means of bringing much curious and useful information. FASHIONABLE RECREATION FOR ROYALTY In Spain.- [Spain] The Times correspondent, writing from Madrid, on the 20th instayt, [instant] remarks that an occurrence of serious moment took place at-a bull-fight here two days since. The Duke and Duchess of Montpensier [Mountains] were present, and according to the custom which prevails when any member of the royal tamily [family] assists at the spectacle, the chief'of the torea- [tore- toreadors] dors [does] requested their permission to commence the fight on his benced knee. [fenced knee] At this proceeding the entire assembly hooted and hissed. When the second bull was about to be led forth, the same ceremony was repeated with the same result, although the famous Montes, [Months] the conqueror in all his battles, was one of the toreadors. On the third bull- [bullfight] fight being about to commence, the toreador merely saluted the duke and duchess, without bending his knee. A shout of applause was immediately raised by the entire mob. Thus the Duke of Mentpensier, [Maintenance] whose only fault is his being foreigner, was e times insulted, The royal party, visibly affected, quitted their box after the death of the third bull. The mes correspondent does not tell us whether these poor animals, mangled in the presence. of sopalty, [personalty] were emily [Emily] or not, but he does not ail in announcing that the royal party quit i 3 after the death of the tiiird.

His appearance evidently excited some curiosity, and when the Judge asked him if he were guing [going] to. preach, a titter went round the court. Mr. Harle replied that he had assumed a. gown, not. from choice, but in com- [commence] liance [Lance] with the order lately made by.Mr. Sergeant Dow- [Endowed] Eng. He had understood that 'in Mr. Sergeant Dowling's Court he would not be heard unless he ap in a gown.

[Engraver] before the public of Leeds, - THE GREATEST DISCOVERY OF THE AGE. We find. in an American newspaper an article under the above title, on an alleged discovery of a new mode of decomposing water, and of obtaining from it the means 'of ifhimination [nomination] and of heating, at a cost so trifling as must pat a stop to the use of coal There is fre- [re- frequently] quently [frequently] so much grave waggery in American news- [newspapers] papers, that we are never quite sure whether we are reading a serious narrative or a clever joke; but the following article certainly does not look like a jew As to the amount of truth contained in it, we must leave our readers to judge for themselves, merely re- [remarking] marking that, if it is true, the discovery is indeed the greatest of the age. (From the Boston Daily Transcript of the 8th inst.) If all that has recently been said of the discovery, by Mr. Henry M. Paine, of the decomposition of water, and the production of an inflammable gas, that is safe and easily managed, and can be applied to domestic uses, be true, then this must attain, par eminence the rank we have assigned it at the head of this article. A couple of gentlemen of this city, a few days since, addressed a letter to Mr. Paine, making inquiries on the subject of this gas. In reply, ke with mmch [much] courtesy, invited them to come to Worcester, where he would be happy to show its operation, and give them any information they might desire. On Thursday evening these gentle- [gentlemen] men visited Worcester and their report is that they were well repaid for their jomrmey. [Jeremy] They learnt from Mr. Paine that he had disposed of the right to use his invention in the United States to parties of gentlemen in Boston and New York. He was very courteous, and gave the gentlemen all the information he could, with- [without] out infringing on the rights of the new proprietors. A fortnight since he would have been pleased to have shown the entire instrument, but, as the matter now stands, he did not feel at liberty to show it. We un- [understand] derstand [understand] that steps have been taken to secure patents in Europe and when secured, the right of use will be offered for sale at a cost within the means of all Mr. Paine does not claim the discovery of decom- [com- decomposing] posing water, which was known 65 years ago; but he does claim the discovery of a new principle of elec- [elect- electricity] tricity, [Trinity] by which the decomposition of water is very rapidly produced, at a merely nominal cost. An hour was spent in hearing him discourse upon the subject, and, if all he claims for the discovery is verified, it cannot fail to revolutionize many departments of modern commerce. 'Fo see the purest flame, so clear that the faintest tints of blue and green can be readily distinguished, and of such a quality that the eye is not pained in gazing on it, certainly speaks well for the superiority of the light. It burns with an even and steady consumption, about one cubic foot in three to four hours, sufficient to light a common-sized room. Tnere [There] is no smell or smoke to the gas. The flame is opaque, snd [and] the power of the jet tremendous. During the last winter Mr. Paine erected a lighthouse upon a hill in front of his house, from which he directed the rays, by a reflector, to a village opposite Worcester, and one mile and a sixth distant im [in] an air line. The light was so powerful that persons in the village could read by it. Another illustration of the character of this light is in the fact, that an excellent daguerreotype has been taken by it. Mr. Paine exhibited the stove which warmed his room. Jt was about 14 inches in diameter, composed of two circular pieces of sheet iron, between which a flame issues, and the cold air rushing in, it gives forth delightful heat. The stove may be used for cooking, and in faet [fate] for all purposes where heat and light are required. The entire labour required to make a day's supply of gas for a common dwelling house does not occupy two minutes in turning a crank, and the machine takes up about as much room as a common mantel clock. Writing upon this subject, Efihu [Effigy] Burritt, [Barrett] the learned blacksmith, says There is not only a saving of ex- [expense] pense, [sense] but of work, and the inconvenicnee [inconvenience] and care of wood, coal, and ashes, and the danger from fire almost completely annihilated. This is not supposition we saw the lights, followed the pipes to the cellar, and saw the apparatus employed for the decomposition of the water, and must gay we can hardly find words to ex- [express] press our astonishment at. the simplicity of the machine, when at the same-time we think of the greatness and grandeur of the discovery. This must rank, if not above, certainly equal, with the greatest discoveries and inventions of the age. Wood, and coal, and oil, and apparatus. Mr. Burritt [Barrett] farther says Two jets such as were burning in his house, woukl [would] be sufficient to light a moderate-sized hall every night, at an expense of the interest on the eost [east] of the machine (about six dollars per annum), with only the little trouble of occasionally filling the water cistern. It is understood that Mr. Paine has disposcd [disposed] of his proprietary right to. his discovery for a sum which may at first seem incredible; but a moment's consideration will show that the purchasers will have got a good bar- [bargain] gain if all that is said ef the capabilities and cheapness of the light can be established. 'Fhe [He] terms of purchase are reported to.be five millions of dollars, haif [Haigh] a million down.. Mr. Paine is expecting a visit from the committee on gas of our city government at Worcester to-day, to look into this matter. eo THE MINISTERS AND THE POST-OFFICE. (From the Manchester Evcaminer.) [Examiner] There is something so bold and impudent in the late parliamentary dodge which threatens to deprive the public of the convenience of the post-office for two montiis [montis] out-of every trelve-something [twelve-something] so startling in Lord Joun [John] and his colleagues at once giving way to it, nat [at] it is difficult to describe the feeling which it has excited in the country. In the midst of anger, one cannot but feel a disposition to laugh It seems like a travestie [travestied] of the late Parisian revolution, and the Minister's let it be done comes upon us with the same surprise as did the ever memorable it's too late of the Paris- [Parisian] ian [in] demagogues which, with the hey presvo- [Presto- ef a. magi- [Maggie] eian, [ina] puffed away Kings and thrones, and the people of France awoke next morning and found themselves re- [republicans] publicans In the same bewilderment we now ask ourselves, are we really in process of being turned into Puritans We are like saubbed [snubbed] school-boys sitting on our forms and biting our lips in silent anger the harsh command of the awful pedagogue has gone forth, and appeal or remonstrance are alike vain. This might be all right and proper for us in our jacket-and-trouser days-but are grown-up men, who flatter themselves they have arrived at years of discre- [discreet- discretion] tion, [ion] who pay their taxes, and carry on the daily busi- [bus- business] ness of life to all appearances as if they really knew what they were doing, to be treated in this way A measure is proposed which appears to numbers, even to ministers themselves, vexatious, uncalled for, and. by a trick, and we are told to submit to it quietly. Lord and his band are virtuous they call Gop [Op] to witness that they act for the public good to the best of their knowledge, and therefore we are to take -all theix- [their- theixlegislative] legislative schemes without discussion; we are meant The immense inconveniences of the present plan have we believe, never onee [one] been taken into con- [consideration] sideration, [side ration] more especially as regards the smaller towns and villages. The very fact of stoppage of daily com- [communication] munication [communication] between those who are sick and theiy [the] medical attendants and friends (very often living widely apart), except, by an express messenger, is sufficient to stamp the measure as oppressive and impracticable. The claim for the post-effice [post-office] servants to be utterly ex- [exempt] empt from work on a Sunday, has again and again been shown to be untenable. House servants, those em- [employed] ployed [played] in bakehouses, inns, zailways, [Railways] hack-horse estab- [stables- establishments] lishments, [establishments] iron manufacturies, [manufacturers] &c., have all a certain amount of work to do on that day. Are the servants of the post-office, who contribute the most to the public convenience with the least sacrifice of thne [the] and. fluid may all be dispensed with by the use of Mr. Paine's likely to cause much public inconvenience-it is carried to be thankful even for a blunder, so long as it is well by a bevy of she has. delight to five 3 labour to themselves, to be made the exception The doings of these 2z'tuous [2z'Tours] meddlers really make one almost regret that some of the customs of our ancestors are not still in use. Old CHaucer [Chaucer] says, that in spring, when the animal spirits are in great activity, nature pricked many of the good people of his time with a longing to go on pilgrimages. Would to heaven the belief in the propitiatory power of such performances still existed What a help it would have been to such men as ASHLEY, PLuUMTRE, [plumed] &c., to get rid of their super- [superabundant] abundant zeal. Their restless spirits would now and then have had a quietus they would have been satisfied with themselves; and the desire to do GoD [God] a service, by inflicting the Jewish Sabbath upon their countrymen, would happily never have entered. their heads. It seems, now, that Ministers, after advising her Majesty to administer this bitter dose of bigotry to her subjects, and after observing the first workings of dis- [disgust] gust whicii [which] (as they predicted) it has occasioned, arc advising us to petition for the rescinding of the order This appears to us very like trying a practical joke ou rather too large a scale to be pleasant. That they have given rope enough to the offenders is most true, but should a Queen and nation be thus trifled with Peiti- [PET- Petitions] tions [tins] moreover, will not truly represent public opinion in a case like this, Thousands who condemn at heart the measure will not like to be brought into collision with those who advocate it, nor ought there to have been u call for them to be so. .
